the tiny brush strokes on how this came about. it does seem clear now paula broadwell was sending e-mails to jill kelley she considered to be harassing and we now know to general allen. general allen did something with his e-mails, he forwarded them to jill kelley and he also sent them to someone at the pentagon for them to look into. when jill kelley went to the fbi, her agent friend in june, to complain about all these e-mails she had both the ones sent to her, we know by paula broadwell as well as whatever e-mails sent to general allen and forwarded to her. she had that -- all those together. i think, andrea, it's fair to say in terms of investigations now, it's all but over for the fbi except for one last question and that is, was there some sort of a classified document violation on the part of paula broadwell? did she have access to things she shouldn't have or more likely was she improperly storing them on her personal computer and house. that's what the search on monday night was about. the people i've talked to say it doesn't appear to be anything major. i suppose the prose

. then the bureau subsequently found that petraeus' biographer, paula broadwell, was sending those anonymous e-mails that law enforcement officials had dealt with. the investigation also determined she was having an affair with petraeus. the fbi then used that information from the investigation to uncover more details and obtain a warrant to surveil broadwell's e-mail, according to the "wall street journal." so, in september, officials say the fbi interviewed broadwell, who then admitted the affair. investigators also convinced her to voluntarily surrender her computer, which was found to contain unauthorized classified information. according to officials, on the week of october 28th, the fbi then interviewed general petraeus, who reportedly admitted the affair at the time, but denied providing any classified information to broadwell. then two members of congress say they received a tip about the same investigation in october which was raised with the fbi. officials say investigators interviewed broadwell again on november 2nd. that's key, because after that second interview, the b
